We have always been fascinated by the stars and planets and marvelling at the night skies. And just like that, on one starry night we learned about a new planet, Makemake. We had not heard of it before but loved the name and kept repeating it. That day we also learned that Makemake was named after the god of fertility of Rapa Nui. As our products are crafted with love and care of new beings and their mamas, it all made sense.
The name Makemake held so much joy and promise that we decided to call our brand Makemake Organics.
Makemake Organics was born out of our own need for organic products, when our baby girl was born. Most brands were self proclaimed organic and everything else was loaded with synthetics, heavily processed and just not what we wanted for our baby. With our heritage is rooted in textiles, we started on a quest to craft products with the softest, most trustworthy fabrics available for our home. We found that like us, many other parents wanted their children to grow up in a carefree, non toxic, safer world and thus we began crafting products from sustainable sources to ensure that only natural materials touch your baby’s delicate skin and stays safe forever.
Our products are designed in Florida and ethically manufactured in India with a focus on sustainably produced natural materials and artisan craftsmanship. We use all-natural dyes and treatments without any harmful toxins, bleaches, fire retardants or pesticides. You may also see variations in prints and fabrics due to the natural process we use. We don’t see these as flaws, but rather proof that each item has been made by hand for your little one.
